For those of us that have a passion for Aussie Rules, or for Soccer, and the Storm, we now have had two occassions where you got the chance to experience the Magical Double. In 1999, Storm and Kangaroos ran away with the title - and this year, Storm and Geelong.

As a Carlton fan, I look back on 1999 with a tinge of sadness, and pray for the day when the double may come. In recent years, I've just been excited the one or two times when both teams won in the same round - let alone Premierships!

So what is your magical double? Given Storm should be a force for the next few years - do you reckon you're a chance?

I don't know about a double but how would it be if all the TeaMelbourne teams were all winners in the same year!!

I noticed at Coles today they had a stand for TeaMelbourne with pictures of each team.  Pity the Storm one is from 2006 and shows only Scott Hill.  :P

I'd loooove for Storm & my Tigers to do a double...every year I say it but it's not going to happen for a looong time methinks - oh well, I'm glad I've got Storm  ;-)
When I want your opinion - I'll give it to you!

Melbourne Storm - Hull Kingston Rovers.

Forget the premiership it's a magical double for me if my teams win on the same weekend, any weekend.

They did do the dreadful double in 1998  : :cry:
